Blue johanni

So today I went to my LFS and saw these really cool Blue Johanni cichlids and I was wondering if they are compatible with electric yellow cichlids and aceis

They are very mean when they get bigger.

You have two of the more mild mannered fish available, as soon as those Johanni reach sexual maturity they can reek havoc on the tank inhabitants.

I thought the same thing but agree completely with Mogurako.....,

I had to rehome mine before they killed several of my other cichlids. They were great until they reached sexual maturity.

i noticed you only have 2 acei? if you are planning on keeping them then you should up the group to at least 4 (1m-3f) before adding a different species. althought most people would agree that acei should be in at least a 4 foot tank.

i believe that the species you're looking at when they say "blue johanni" is actually maingano, which look almost identical other then the fact that johanni females are yellow. was there a mix of color in the tanks or were they all blue? if they are maingano (all blue, no difference between female and male) then i think it may work in your tank. they are aggressive but from what i have heard they are less aggressive then johanni. i personally have them mixed with red zebras and yellow labs in my tank and i find that they are mostly aggressive to each other, they rarely pick on anyone else.
